Matthew Jones, MD Vantage Eye Center - Salinas

My Passion for Practice

Matthew Jones, MD joined Vantage Eye Center in 1998 to provide expert cornea, refractive, and cataract surgery services. Dr. Jones completed medical school at the University of California at San Francisco. After graduating from medical school, he stayed at UCSF for his residency training in ophthalmology. After completing his ophthalmology residency, he performed a fellowship in cornea and refractive surgery at the prestigious Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia. Following this intensive extra year of training in diseases and surgery of the cornea, Dr. Jones joined Vantage Eye Center. In September of 1998, Dr. Jones performed the first corneal transplantation in the history of Monterey County. Prior to his arrival, Monterey County patients needing this delicate operation had to travel to UCSF or Stanford for their eye care. Dr. Jones' training as both a cataract surgeon and refractive (LASIK) surgeon enables him to correct vision for a variety of ocular problems and with a variety of approaches. "I enjoy the challenge of understanding a patient's unique situation and designing a vision correction plan that best meets their needs. I'm lucky to practice in a specialty where we have so many options available", Dr. Jones comments. Dr. Jones recently served on the American Academy of Ophthalmology's Corneal External Disease Panel. This prestigious panel, consisting of seven corneal specialists from across the country, developed recommendations for the preferred treatment of common corneal conditions and diseases. These Preferred Practice Patterns are used as guidelines for ophthalmologists, other physicians, and optometrists world wide. Dr. Jones has hospital privileges at Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital, and Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula. He enjoys spending time with his family, swimming, and listening to music.

Dr Jones is very thorough, knowledgeable and desires the best treatment options for his patients. He gave me a clear explanation of the current situation with the condition of my eye health and answered all my questions. With the new changes he referred me to the glaucoma specialist.

Left Cataract Removal.
Doctor rating

All went very smoothly. Dr. Jones did a great job removing my cataract and vastly improving my vision, even though I had had a detached retina in that eye, my vision is close to 20/20. I would not hesitate in recommending Dr. Jone to anyone needing eye surgery.
